White or wood kitchen cabinets?

dd35February 1, 2014
Doing a total kitchen renovation. So confused whether to do dark wood cabinets with white islands or white cabinets with dark wood islands. Floors will be hardwood- can be finished light or dark. Also plug molding or traditional outlets???

It is a very large kitchen with many cabinets and two islands.

I prefer the look of wood as I think it adds richness to the room.

Wood if you are wanting to stay traditional. However, white cabinets are timeless too and look great in a small kitchen. Check out photos of kitchens and see what you are most attracted to.

Wood cabinetry if you have younger children.

In a large kitchen I would mix the two. I can't figure out how to cut and paste the photo on my tablet in order to show you. If you go to my profile, it is the first picture in the Kennedy Ideabook. Very balanced use of two-toned cabinets.

White cabinets are timeless. You can then do the wood island, and treat it more like a piece of furniture.

Finally got to a computer. Here is the type of combination I would suggest.
